    My wife was going to help me this year but we foud out she is pregnant:) :dizzy: and we decided that it was probally a good idea if she didn't work hard in the heat in her "delicate" position. She does want to help next year though. My question is this, do you guys pay your wives that help. My thinking is that if I pay her she will harder then me beating her:D , You know that whole positive reinforcement thing.

    your wife is worth more than you will be able to pay her.
    If she does work with you but not for you then good luck

    "Before this is all over you'll be paying her more than you know". BTW, That positive reinforcement thing is later nullified by negative stimulus provided by attornies fees. :cry: I'd seek help elsewhere, it's tons cheaper.
